History[edit]

The village was established in 1966 by residents of other local moshavim as part of a plan to encourage more Jewish settlement in the Galilee. It is located on the land of the Palestinian villages of Dayr al-Qassi and Al-Mansura,[2] both were depopulated in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War.
